Williston Community Church

8270 Harmony Road/Route 16
between By-Pass Road and Williston Lane, Williston

The Williston Community Church, built for the Congregationalists in about 1868, was most likely adapted from plans by Richard Upjohn, one of the most prominent architects of the mid-nineteenth century in America. The construction is called “board-and-batten” and is very similar to the construction style of the Williston Mill, one half mile south on Harmony Road. The style, popularized by Upjohn as a way of achieving a Gothic style without the expense of stonework, was known as “Carpenter Gothic.”
